Orchard Lake St. Mary's quarterback Robert Bolden has pulled the plug on a planned visit to Oregon this weekend in order to attend a 7-on-7 competition this weekend in East Lansing GoSpartans.net has learned.
Bolden had previously been scheduled to head to Eugene, Oregon to visit the campus of the Oregon Ducks who are heavily recruiting him, but instead, in the wake of the recent 1-2 punch commitments of the State's top player in William Gholston and one of the top corners in the state Mylan Hicks to MSU, he has changed his plans.
Robert Bolden, Sr., told GSN on Wednesday that indeed his son will be in attendance at the 7-on-7 competition and that he views State very highly.
According to his dad, he will make the visit to Oregon in the future, but this weekend, he'll be in East Lansing.
What does this mean?
Bolden called GSN to inform him that his entire team will be participating in the 7-on-7 in East Lansing against four other teams. Bolden said that while he is interested in MSU, he has no favorites and no "top anything." He says he was not surprised by the decision of Mylan Hicks to attend Michigan State because he has "wanted to go there for some time." He said of William Gholston's decision he didn't know what Gholston was going to do but was happy for him. He said, however, that none of that would affect his decision and neither would the distance from his home to any interested school. He said he intends to take his time with the process and enjoy it. Bolden passed for just over 1,000 yards and threw only seven TD passes, his ceiling is tremendous because unlikely many of the new breed of so-called "dual threat" signal callers, Bolden can actually throw the ball and has solid mechanics.
Keep a close eye on this developing situation.
